    The Snapdragon

    BY:Eben Klemm

      Brent and Josh are always coming up with new recipes with items harvested fresh from the Beekman 1802 Heirloom Garden, so I thought I’d develop a cocktail fresh from the spring garden. I’m not a huge fan of most flavored vodkas.  Even from the best ingredients, it always seems a little artificial to me.  […]

    Beekman 1802 Cajeta

    BY:Josh and Brent

    When thinking of new products for Beekman 1802, we look for inspiration all over the farm (and even all over the world).  For our latest, we didn’t have to look very far or very hard at all.  One day about two years ago, in a conversation on the stoop of Farmer John’s house, he mentioned […]

    The Valhalla

    Habanera Cajeta and Graham Cracker Ice Cream

    BY:Josh and Brent

    Mmmmm…hot peppers for dessert! Okay, even we’ll admit that might not sound terribly tempting –at least to the more traditional among us. But lest you think that us country-folk lead a bland & simple existence, we want to share one of our favorite made-up Beekman creations: Habanero Cajeta. Translated roughly, that ends up as “hot-pepper […]

    Hair of the Llama Cocktail

    BY:Eben Klemm

        I know this is the first week of Spring, but that’s a bit hard to visualize in upstate New York right now.  Those white flakes falling by my window are not of a substance I or anybody associates with the first day of spring.  That’s why my first round of spring cocktails look […]

    Kicky Chipotle Catsup

    BY:Josh and Brent

        Some summers we’re blessed with so many tomatoes, we struggle with how to use them all.  We’ve never been a fan of catsup.  Sugar and tomatoes seemed like a totally unnecessary combination, but met one summer with some free time and a bountiful harvest we worked up this recipe. It makes a perfect […]

    Dark Chocolate Chip Hazelnut Cookies with Orange.

    BY:Josh Kilmer-Purcell

      I don’t know how many people know this, but Toll House is one of my advertising clients. How lucky am I? Yep, I can ask for packages of morsels any time I want. For “research,” of course. Purely for research. But even if they weren’t a client of mine, I’ve got to admit that […]
